BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker 'apologises profusely' after cheeky swipe at co-star's weight

BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker was caught up in an extremely awkward moment after he was forced to apologise profusely to his co-host Nina Warhurst.

On Tuesday's programme, Dan presented a segment alongside Nina where reporter Ben Boulous discussed the latest Christmas Royal Mail updates.

However, Dan soon made a sly – yet unintentional – dig towards his co-host Nina's weight. 

Reporter Ben was speaking to the pair as he said: "Nina and Dan, I thought what better way than to wrap a little Christmas parcel from me to you. 

“I had a look around my flat and I found a little box of chocolates and I've lovingly wrapped it.

"I say a box of chocolate, it's literally the box, the chocolates have been consumed already, but it's Christmas it's the thought that counts, right?"

Nina then jokingly replied: "Absolutely, I will definitely be hot-footing it in the office on Christmas day in order to collect that empty box. Thank you, Ben."

Dan then accidentally offended Nina and said: "It keeps the weight down as well knowing there's not any chocolate in it."

Shocked by his comment, Nina said: "What are you saying?"

Looking guilty, Dan panicked and said: "No, not your weight!"

"Get out, get out while you can. It's time now for the news, travel and the weather while I apologise profusely to Nina."

Luckily, Nina laughed and brushed off the situation, but still didn't let Dan off the hook completely with Nina telling him "it's too late".
